Dubai: A new market perfect for the family opened at Al Safia Park in Ajman on Friday.
Dubbed as the Mosaic Market, the community initiative by the Abdulaziz Bin Humaid Foundation, is a first-of-its-kind weekend market that began operating in Ajman as part of the foundation’s commitment to serve the community and bring joy to citizens and residents.
Shaikh Abdul Aziz Bin Humaid Al Nuaimi attended the opening of the market.
The Mosaic Market features 40 booths of three different sizes. Entrepreneurs and members of the community who own small and medium-sized enterprises will be able to showcase retail products ranging from fashion offerings, furniture, books, handicrafts, jewellery and the like. They will also organise various forms of entertainment, activities and stage performances for visitors of every demographic segment.
“The idea and the name was chosen by Shaikh Abdul Aziz Bin Humaid. A mosaic is created from small bits and pieces of stone or other materials to create a beautiful piece. This is the same concept for this market, hence the name,” Shaikha Ali Al Nuaimi, Corporate Communication Manager of the Abdul Aziz Bin Humaid Foundation, told Gulf News.
“It is expected that the Mosaic Market will attract many visitors, seeking to enjoy the high-end facilities and the varied entertainment line-up. Many of these activities, like the stage performances and exciting competitions, will be premiering in Ajman for the first time. We also expect unique products on offer every weekend. So we can assure visitors that there’s something for everyone here at the market,” she added.
Shaikha Ali said that during the first days of the Mosaic Market, the stage performance will be sponsored by the Ajman Real Estate Regulatory Agency and presented by Bahraini comedians Ali Al Gurair and Khalil Al Rumaithi.
The Mosaic Market will be held for eight weekends until January, 2017.
